What you need to know about the Buccaneers
Tampa Bay lost a heartbreaker to the Pittsburgh Steelers when they met in September of 2018, and they left with a heavy heart again this past Sunday. Tampa Bay fell just short of Pittsburgh by a score of 20-18. No one had a standout game offensively for the Buccaneers, but they got one touchdown from RB Leonard Fournette. QB Tom Brady ended up with a passer rating of 121.8.
The Buccaneers have struggled mightily on the offensive side of the ball this year. The Tampa Bay rushing attack is producing a league-worst 67.5 yards per game, which has put a lot of unnecessary pressure on Brady and the team's offensive line.
What you need to know about the Panthers
The Panthers fought hard four a half, but they were simply overmatched by the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in their 24-10 Week 6 loss. Former XFL standout P.J. Walker got the start for Carolina with Sam Darnold on injured reserve and Baker Mayfield battling an ankle injury. Walker was forced to leave the game against the Rams with a neck injury, but is expected to be available against the Buccaneers in Week 7.
The Panthers are clearly headed towards a rebuilding project, and that became even clearer when they traded McCaffrey. D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard are expected to split carries going forward.
